    Tuco, If you can store my darkroom sinks until you move, I would like for you to have them (free of course). This goes for any LFFers in the Puget Sound area. Come and get 'em.

    Here's the last of my Industrial Glamour project. Started with a 1949 Vincent Rapide and ended with this 1975 Ducati. Closing down my darkroom to move and won't have any new work for some months....
  4. Re: Expired film, storted at room temp, for bin?

    Toss 'em. The days and creative energy you waste shooting with free film aren't worth it. One roll will be fine, the next two will be badly fogged. There are enough uncertainties with composition,...

    Re: Dark images trend?

    I'm noticing this in photo-journalism. Maybe it's current culture trend. Or maybe the news is just dark in emotion. I think it might be overdone.

    Re: What did you compose at Waters Edge?

    Very interesting. What's the physical scale here? If you could do a series of these we'd have an alternative to the traditional "equivalents" genre.

    Re: Dating your prints

    I date with the time the negative was made. That sets my copyright at the earliest time. Prints can be rolling out for decades afterward, but the original copyright is at the earlier time.

    Even an amateur will find a business card helpful when seeking permission to shoot somewhere.

    Re: Dark Streaks on RA4

    I think the stop bath is essential. In my experience water doesn't cut off the development sharply enough and lets the print keep developing until its kind of brownish.

    Re: Dark Streaks on RA4

    I used to get these if a dribble of water ran down the sheet before I poured in the chemistry. It meant I hadn't dried out the drum well enough from the previous sheet. Maybe this is your case?
